Should We Get Rid of Bottled Water?
We should get rid of bottled water.
We need to address this issue, but we need a wider variety of options to allow consumers to get lower cost water.
The best alternative to bottle water is refillable water bottles (Nalgene etc.). People need to be taught that refillable water bottles are far better and more eco-friendly. There are so many water bottles in the earth that they can wrap around the earth 190 times.
There are more than
50 billion plastic bottles
used each year; getting rid of the them will have a huge, fast, positive impact in the environment
It is not a sustainable solution.
Currently, bottled water contributes to the growing problem of plastic waste.

There is a need for clean drinking water where none is available through tap or wells.
Consumers should decide, not regulation.
Personal liberty and choice is more important.
